President Joe Biden‘s Covid-19 response team is holding a news briefing Wednesday on the coronavirus pandemic, which has infected more than 27 million Americans and killed at least 468,217 in about a year.

The briefing comes as new reports find some Americans are skeptical about getting a Covid-19 vaccine. Just under half of adults in the U.S. surveyed in December said they were very likely to get vaccinated, according to a new study from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The Associated Press also found that 1 in 3 Americans say they definitely or probably won’t get the shots.

That could potentially jeopardize U.S. vaccination efforts to control the pandemic. Without so-called herd immunity, the virus will continue to spread from person to person and place to place for years to come, scientists have said.
